The veteran defensive lineman had visited Seattle twice on his free agent tour, but agreed to a four-year deal with Chicago on Wednesday.

 

Ben Goseling wrote on ESPN.com Wednesday:

The Chicago Bears agreed to terms with Allen on a four-year deal, the team announced Wednesday. Allen told ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder in a text that “the Bears came in last minute and everything worked out.”

 

Allen’s deal could be worth up to $32 million, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. It includes $15.5 million in guaranteed money and could void after three years and $24 million.

 

The Seahawks had evidently offered Allen less money, or a shorter contract.

Allen is a five-time Pro Bowler with Kansas City and Minnesota.
